My Christmas Message

My Christmas Message

When Mr. Livingston told me that I’d be leading off Personal Liberty Digest™ on Christmas Day, the only suggestion he offered involved “something short and light.” I leafed through the Bible for suitable Christmas inspiration, turning to the most Christmasy passage I could think of: Luke 2:10-14.

Christmas With The Maya

Christmas With The MayaThe extinct stone-age culture got the dates wrong — who saw that coming? Ol’ Pluggsy is on the job; more or less. And guess who’s coming for the guns?

Not Worth The Effort

Not Worth The Effort

Last week, word filtered back from the Mideast: Syria, normally a veritable Shangri-La, loaded chemical weapons into warheads for deployment against rebels in the civil war which has torn the land asunder and absorbed billions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives. What should the United States do?

An American Hero

An American Hero

On Thursday, I shared with you the story of Devin McLean. The Air Force veteran and father-to-be called the offices of Personal Liberty Digest™ to correct some details that have raced across the Internet. McLean worried that he was being depicted as more heroic than he felt was warranted.

Bringing Home The Bacon
